We Care Wednesday Update!!!

This school year, we are excited that We Care Wednesdays will highlight more themes... and this month we are celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month (9/15-10/15)!


This week we celebrate Hispanic Heritage in the arts.


This past Wednesday we recognized the amazing artist Frida Kahlo. (Many of you may recognize her name and work from a Meet the Masters project last school year!)


Frida Kahlo was a Mexican painter known for her many portraits, self-portraits, and works inspired by the nature and artifacts of Mexico. Inspired by the country's popular culture, she employed a natïve folk art style to explore important questions in society.


Stay tuned for another highlight of Hispanic Heritage next week!
